Former NFL Fullbacks Agree, Bend has Taste

At least that's one way to interpret the city of Bend's announcement that it has again been recognized as having the best tasting tap water in the region.

At least that’s one way to interpret the city of Bend’s announcement that it has again been recognized as having the best tasting tap water in the region. So what does a former NFL fullback have to do with it. Well, were not totally sure on that either. However, according to the city, the four-person panel that tasted 13 water samples as part of the Pacific Northwest’s Cascade to Coast subsection of the American Water Works Association included a brewer, a winemaker, a water systems analyst and a “former National Football League Fullback.”

So what credentials does a fullback have for determining the best tasting water? Well, if you’ve ever been to a August mini-camp you’d probably know that football players drink more water in a day than the average person does in a month. Or at least we presume they do since we’ve never been to an NFL camp either.

As far as the city water goes, it earned 95 out of a possible 120 points and qualified to compete in regionals. Which is sort of like the playoffs. See water and football have more in common than you thought.
